ProNatural Brands Tip of the Week: Making Stainless Steel Shine

Do you have smudges on your stainless-steel kitchen appliances? How about streaks, grease, or oil buildup?

As popular as stainless-steel appliances are, it is often difficult to clean. Some suggest using white vinegar, a few drops of dish soap with warm water, glass cleaner, rubbing oil, olive oil, or even flour paste.

Forget all that.

One of the easiest – and little-known – ways to clean stainless steel is with citric-acid-based cleaning solutions such as LEXX® sanitary cleaner.

Plus, it’s perfectly safe. LEXX products are made from 100 percent, naturally derived, FDA-approved food ingredients.

Here’s how to do it:

  • Find the grain. All stainless steel has a grain. These are tiny lines running vertically or horizontally.
  • Using the LEXX ready-to-use sanitary cleaner, spray it on the stainless. No water or mixing is necessary.
  • Using a microfiber cloth, gently wipe and clean in the direction of the grain.
  • Use slightly stronger strokes if there is grease, oil, or soil buildup. We don’t want to damage the stainless steel.
  • Start from the top and work down.
  • No rinsing is necessary.
  • For an added shine, buff with a clean towel.

Be sure and change the microfiber cloth frequently. As soil builds up, the effectiveness of the cloth and the cleaning solution can diminish.

This is a safe, healthy, and user-friendly way to clean stainless steel. Not only does it clean, but it also makes stainless-steel appliances look brand new, something you and your customer will really like.
